The Second Circuit Court of Appeals is figuring out whether or not to unseal documents from a lawsuit against a lady accused of running a sex trafficking ring with billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Judges had given parties 15 days to dispute why documents in a lawsuit brought against Epstein’s ex – partner Ghislaine Maxwell shouldn’t be unsealed.
Maxwell is fighting the unsealing of records; so are two anonymous people who submitted motions on Tuesday.
The documents can shed light on accusations against Epstein and Maxwell, as the case was brought in 2015 by Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who maintained that Maxwell employed her to be a masseuse for Epstein when she was 16 years old.
This apparently resulted in Epstein having her carry out sex acts at his behest from 1999 to 2002.
Giuffre maintained that other underage girls were involved also.
Maxwell apparently settled the case for millions of dollars in 2017, and court documents have been kept under seal.
Court records demonstrate that people who filed motions for leave to intervene in the case are going by the titles John Doe and J. Doe. John Doe’s motion seeks redaction of third party individuals’ personal details.
His motion stated that while he is not a party in the case, nor has he ever been a party in litigation linked to the case, he is concerned that unsealing documents without redactions “may well substantially infringe the privacy and reputational interests of many third persons, potentially including [Doe], who have never been charged with a crime, have never been subject to civil proceedings, and have never been publicly identified by Giuffre.”
One individual who has been publicly identified by Giuffre is Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz, who she says had sex with her while she was underage and working for Epstein.
Dershowitz, who represented Epstein in a related case, has consistently and emphatically denied this.
Dershowitz called Giuffre a “certified, complete, total liar” in a conversation with the Law & Crime Network’s Brian Ross in December 2018.
He explained her allegations against him were a “complete and total fabrication.”
Epstein, in the meantime, was convicted in 2008 as part of a guilty plea to a state charge of soliciting prostitution from underage females.
The billionaire averted federal charges by entering a non-prosecution agreement, which a federal judge fairly recently stated was made illegally.
The agreement, which was provided by prosecutors working under Alexander Acosta (who is the existing U.S. Labor Secretary), was made without telling any of the alleged victims in the case.
